Restaurant Wils by Michelin star chef Joris Bijdendijk (Rijks), is located next to the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. The restaurant focuses on cooking on a wood fire. You get welcomed by a glass on kombucha made in house, the flavor changes all the time. We got the one with passion fruit and it was delicious. I am a big kombucha fan. We got to see where they keep it and did a little taste test. You can see it and get a better impression of the restaurant by video on my Instagram Reels or my TikTok.
They just launched a new menu. We went there for lunch and had the 3-course lunch menu (€45) plus a few extras. They also have a 6-course set menu (€85) and some a la carte dishes. We started with the Jerusalem artichoke with snails and hazelnut which was really nice. The wood fire gives it a good flavor without overpowering it. My favorite dish was actually the extra dish that Pieter ordered. It was the dried aged rib eye with hollandaise that came with a side of leek & bone marrow. The beef was so tender, the fat would just melt in your mouth. And it had been years since I had bone marrow. The combination with the grilled leek was delicious. I also very much enjoyed the Orchard sour cocktail. The pumpkin tart with speculaas crust and pumpkin seed ice cream was a great ending.
